27 Years Ago Today... The 7 astronauts of space shuttle Challenger lost their lives 73 seconds into flight on a frigid January day. 46 years ago yesterday, the 3 astronauts of Apollo 1 perished in a terrible fire during a ground launch rehearsal at Cape Canaveral, Florida. This Friday, it will be a decade since the crew of space shuttle Columbia was lost during re-entry into Earth's atmosphere over Texas. May all these explorers rest in peace. NASA's official Day of Remembrance will be on February 1st.
